Old Blind Dogs - Play Live



Thirteen tracks from the Old Blind Dogs; Scottish folk music in supreme style, live throughout the U.S. of A. This is a musical memento of their Spring 2004 trip. Not new material, but it's great to hear the old favourites with life and appreciation.

"Long on quantity and long on quality, Scotland's favourite live act of 2004 runs through an impressive set from their last three studio albums. There's a nod to the early days of Iain Benzie and Davy Cattenach with The Battle of Harlaw, but after this opening big ballad it's non-stop newer material fronted by Jim Malcolm and Rory Campbell. The Dogs settle quickly into their customary gutsy groove somewhere between blues and birl, and they stay there pretty much for the next hour...there's a bit of everything here. 

Breton and Galician tunes played on a variety of pipes and flutes, Scottish piping classics such as Lochanside and A Man's A Man, new songs from Jim and old songs from the tradition, new tunes from Gavin Marwick and other young composers, and old favourites like The Battle of Waterloo or Kincardine Lads which will delight OBD's loyal followers. It's hard not to be touched by the powerful vocals of The Wisest Fool or the musical brilliance of Sky City.

Even the packaging is appealing, chaotic images over a careful listing of tunes and full lyrics for all tracks". Alex Monaghan
